Confluence 5.5 and macro "Multimedia" can't play a swf file


we use Confluence 5.5. Macro "Multimedia" has a fault. Not play swf video format 1343 x 574 resolution Sometimes the control panel appears, but even so the video will not play. Other video format 1129 x 606 managed to run. What is the problem that it behaves differently?

When will the corrected error flag "Autoplay"? MP4 video format is played back automatically, regardless of the flag "Autoplay".

Hello Guilherme,

thanks for your feedback ! I used "Flash for Confluence" plugin, but no change. Some swf videos can not be played anyway. I'll wait for the fix in Confluence. :-)

Have a nice day !

Best Regards,


Hello Soňa, the macro is known to have some current issues for some circunstances, as you can see in our issue tracker there is a paid alternate that can be an option, take a look into the Flash for Confluence plugin.

Hope this helps.
